Castawayroth I'm not sure what you mean by the layouts view. Do you mean the projects bar usually organized on the right of the screen or a layout in your project?
At the top of construct are 4 tabs: file, home, view, and events
Click on view and make sure that the bar you need is checked. The projects view is the window with all your event sheets, layouts, objects, etc associated with an open project organized in folders. If you close a layout or an event sheet and need to reopen it, all you need to do is double click it in the projects bar to reopen.
